Help us create our spring collaboration to benefit Food for the Poor!

Twice a year at Scrap Girls, our fabulous designers work together to create a unique collection that we call our "Charity Kit." A full 100% of the sale of these collections go to help others.

Our charity of choice is always Food for the Poor (http://foodforthepoor.org/), a terrific Christian organization that helps those who need it most. We have requested that money raised by Scrap Girls goes specifically toward providing clean drinking water, and to date, Scrap Girls has helped Food for the Poor dig new wells in communities all around the world.

This year, we want our customers to join us in the fun of creating this spring's charity kit. For the next three weeks, we will be asking questions on our Facebook page to find out what style, theme, and color palette you would like to see for our spring collection. So stop by our page and share your opinion.

Then, as the designers get to work on what you come up with, we'll use Facebook to give you some previews of their designs!

If you've ever wanted to have a say in what goes into a collection, this is your big chance! As always, 100% of the sales of the spring collection will go to Food for the Poor – so the very best part is that it's all for a good cause!

- Debbie

Scrap Girls is Having an Art Journal-Inspired ATC Contest!

We love contests at Scrap Girls and here's a contest unlike any we've ever had before! So, grab your digital scrapbooking and art supplies and join us for our Art Journal-inspired Artist Trading Card (ATC) contest!

Scrap Girls has a pretty popular ATC challenge and swap, and there are quite a few of us who are crazy about art journaling. So why not combined the two and have some fun?! The Scrap Girls Boutique is full of great products that lend themselves to art journal pages and ATCs. You are only limited by your imagination! We think this contest will help you look at your digital supplies in a whole new light.

If you're not familiar with ATCs, here's an example to get you started:

  4. Create your art journal-inspired ATC, save it as a JPG (300 pixels), then upload it to the Scrap Girls Journaling Chat Gallery by midnight (ET) on February 3rd!

We will be choosing winners based on creativity and the willingness to try! Have fun and enter as many cards as you like!

We are awarding four great prizes, including:

Games

January's Forum Game: Jumpstart January!

It's time to kick off the new year with some fun and a focus on scrapbooking! Join us on Scrap Girls Forum for "Jumpstart January!" This is a game and challenge that focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly despite the little "speedbumps" of life. When the month is over you'll have completed several layouts and been treated to some fun along the way.

A Welcoming Committee Member will post a task each Monday through Saturday from January 1-31. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows. Some tasks will require message board participation, email responses or gallery posting. Read each daily task carefully to see what is required of you.

Those who complete all the required tasks and submit or post required participation by 11:59 pm (ET) January 31st will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Those who complete all the layouts will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $5 gift certificates. Each person who completes a layout will be entered – once for each completed challenge page - into a drawing for one of three $3 gift certificates.

For complete details, visit the Monthly Forum Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.

Contests

January Monthly Layout Contest: Our scrapbooks are full of the holidays, birthdays and special events. But what about those little, everyday moments? For the January Layout Contest, we'd love to see your layouts featuring everyday moments or habitual tasks that would otherwise go undocumented. Please post your layouts in the January Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight ET on January 31st and you could one of the two people who will win a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Please be sure to list your layout's product credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties.
